Hallway - craftsman hallway idea in Seattle


Craftsman Hall, Seattle

This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

    Martha Stewart always uses templates to figure out how to hang things before getting a bunch of nail holes in the wall- I always say I'm going to do it her way but then just start hammering willy-nilly!

A collection of art strayed from the "only at eye-level" norm, and garnered reader attention as a result.
